History

The state of Chhattisgarh was created by the Madhya Pradesh Reorganization Act 2000,[2] approved by the President of India on 25 August 2000. The Chhattisgarh Vidhan Sabha came into existence with the creation of the state on 1 November 2000. The first session of the Chhattisgarh Vidhan Sabha was held at Jashpur hall of Rajkumar College in Raipur. Later, the Vidhan Sabha was shifted to the newly constructed Chhattisgarh Vidhan Sabha Bhavan at Vidhan Nagar, on RaipurBaloda Bazar Road.[1]
A new building for Vidhan Sabha is under construction at Sector 19, Atal Nagar behind Indravati Bhawan & Mahanadi Bhawan. The groundbreaking ceremony was done by Bhupesh Baghel on 29 August 2020 in the presence of leaders like Rahul Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi and other ministers. The construction is currently halted since 2021 and all tenders are cancelled by the Government of Chhattisgarh due to the COVID-19 pandemic in Chhattisgarh. The inauguration is expected to be on or after 2025.[3][4]
